Thursday morning, @CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if a reporter could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown. After we informed them about our past reports, they declined to hear from us.

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) Thursday morning, CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if one of our reporters could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown.

KUSI offered our own Dan Plante, who has reported dozens of times on the border, including one story from 2016 that was retweeted by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, and posted on DrudgeReport.com. The Border Fence Tour is below.

We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work.

We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.

CNN has a narrative. Not surprising.

Imagine if CNN reported that walls do infact work.

They would lose half their viewers and face outrage for supporting Trump.

Even if it is just one section of the wall working.

So why do we need a giant Wall, when current barriers in place are working perfectly fine?

I mean Jim Acosta went to a section of the wall and claimed no problems with people crossing the border there.

So if the wall working is fake news then I guess Jim was making fake news?

I mean, the evidence will show that there's no "humanitarian crisis"/"invasion of [ms13]". The scare tactics have been thrown up to 1000% to justify the project, regardless as to whether or not a wall would be effective. Essentially, the question you should be asking is not whether a wall would be effective, but whether or not it is necessary given the cost and the actual current situation.

Actually that is just you misunderstanding things. What he was saying was that people were having no problems crossing the border there in spite of the wall.

lmao

kusi has a great morning show ...sad I moved an hour north into Riverside...now I have to watch garbage KTLA which might have the dumbest people ever talking about "news"

I lived in San Diego for 30 years and a wall would help curb illegal immigration for sure. I've seen people crossing the current situation down there quite easily. If the goal is to curb illegal immigration, a wall will indeed help. And every single border patrol agent I have spoken with have been for a wall saying it would help curb illegal immigration as well.

Now they could just all be racist bigots or they may know a thing or two about border security

"we believe", meaning "we don't have any evidence"

and here's the reply from CNN that TC conveniently omitted

CNN PR replied to our tweet with the following statement, We called several local stations to book someone for a show. We didnt end up booking any of them. That happens many times every single day. We did, however, book a reporter from KUSI for a story on immigration and the border wall in November. This is a non story.

but of course this tiny local news organization will get more views/attention/etc by creating a narrative.

Except that's not what Trump is asking for. He wants to tear down the current barrier to build a new wall over it. It's a waste of money.

If you want to improve the existing barrier that's fine but let's not rebuild something that already works.

I'm pretty sure the current issue is whether or not a wall needs to be built, not whether or not we need to tear down the current fence and eliminate the entire concept of border security.

It's almost like they're realizing this wall is unpopular and probably not happening, so they've swapped to yelling at strawmen that are trying to tear down the border.
